"If it works, it's obsolete."�
"We look at the present through a rear-view mirror. We march backwards into the future."
"'Camp' is popular because it gives people a sense of reality to see a replay of their lives."
"People often say that this or that person has not yet found himself. But the self is not something one finds, it is something one creates." - Thomas Szasz, "Personal Conduct," The Second Sin, 1973
We are talking about obsessions which determine the gestures and perceptions of artists throughout a life's work, even when their conscious attention is elsewhere. A kind of bias of the
imagination. The way a life's work slips towards a theme which is home for that artist.

"Things worthwhile generally just don't happen. Luck is a fact, but it should not be a factor. Good luck is what is leftover after intelligence and efforts have combined at
their best. Negligence or indifference or inattention are usually reviewed from an unlucky seat. The law of cause and effect and causality both work the same with inexorable exactitudes. Luck is
the residue of design." - Branch Rickey, quoted from "Little Blue Book"
"There is only one success - to be able to spend your life in your own way." - Christopher Morley
